CHAPPAQUA - While the most diehard supporters of Hillary Clinton are wishing her well after her pneumonia diagnosis, there is criticism over how her health scare was handled.
Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia and prescribed antibiotics by her doctor in Westchester on Friday, but her campaign did not reveal her medical condition until Sunday.
The news of her illness came hours after a bystander captured a video of her unsteady on her feet and stumbling as she left the 9/11 memorial service at Ground Zero. Clinton then appeared outside her daughter's apartment shortly after, claiming to feel much better.
“I was a little taken back by her response. I would like to see her be a little more candid even though she was under attack for her health,” said Clinton supporter Jay Forbes.
Rep. Nita Lowey, a close friend of Clinton’s, said the only stumble is by Clinton's critics.
“People should leave her alone. Pneumonia is a common problem. She should have her privacy,” she said.
Clinton's campaign said it will be releasing additional medical information on the Democratic presidential nominee in the next few days. Donald Trump also said he planned on releasing a detailed medical report soon.
The first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump is scheduled in two weeks at Hofstra University.
